Our story as an individual and history as a wedding photography company.
When I began to photograph couples and weddings, I very purposefully avoided doing much reading and looking at other photographer's work. I read some books and watched a few videos, but much seemed outdated and not what I would want out of my own wedding photographer. I instead decided to develop my own identity to ensure the path I took would be something unique, modern, and what I deeply felt was right. I was always someone who loved having easy access to information, but I found it almost liberating to not worry about what others suggested and that process made me a much more confident person. Years later, I have learned a lot from the photography community and close friends that would be impossible to ever figure out alone But I still approach every wedding day how I believe is best for you while creating compelling photographs.
I know every wedding day is unique and don't go begin with preconceived notions of how things should be done. Instead, I make the most of what is happening every step of the way. Looking through past photo sets from years before, I can still recall being at each and every wedding all the way from the getting ready in the morning through the reception at night. I want you to look at the own photographs I provide to you and have those memories along with many more emotions come flooding back as well. I hope that your relatives, friends, and future children see the photos in albums (or online) and be able to vividly imagine the day and all of its goings on as well.
Outside of photography, I love listening to music from all over the world, have a giant dog that does all in his power to make me take him to the park, and walk my daughter and her friends to school every morning as they argue about who is the actual prettiest princess in the entire world. I trained my cats to sit with me by having a bag of regular cat food that I feed them as if they were treats and think Cheerios with orange juice is the best breakfast ever. I found a super cool adjustable height desk from IKEA and have 3 different chairs in the office for it for the various settings. Everything I do is carefully planned, but I don't mind at all when the day invariables turns out to be anywhere from slightly to completely different from what I expected.
